Igor’s Lab has leaked what appears to be the complete slide deck for Intel’s upcoming 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” processors. Featured is a SKU chart that can confirm the specifications for six SKUs, including the flagship Core i9-13900K, which will apparently boast 24 cores, turbo frequencies of up to 5.8 GHz, and a maximum turbo power rating of 253 watts. The initial lineup also includes the Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600, available similarly in K nd KF variants.

There are at least three notable differences between the Alder Lake and Raptor Lake generations, according to a slide that compares 12th Gen vs. 13th Gen Core desktop processors.

From Igor’s Lab:

How does Intel actually want to sell the new Raptor Lake CPUs? Today’s sales foils, which I show you as a picture gallery, suggest that the blue foil king sees enough strong arguments to give the sales team the right ammunition. But will all this be enough to still have a progandistic advantage after the launch of the new Ryzen CPUs, or will we have to bake even smaller rolls? Because Zen 4 is brand new and a real revolution in the AMD cosmos. In contrast, Raptor Lake is virtually only a small evolution with the help of the power socket, but in all fairness, let’s wait and see how the carnage turns out. AMD will present it at the end of the month, Intel will then follow suit. It remains and becomes exciting.

In case anyone is wondering if that’s all for today: No! At 2 p.m. sharp, there will be a product launch with two test samples, one of which is a hot candidate for an absolute top spot in its crawl group and the other of which at least doesn’t send cold shivers down your spine. But you’ll have to come back again, but you like to do that, I know you do.
